  3. I plan to pray to the gods of reason and logic over beer and sausage that republicans, democrats, conservatives, and progressives start looking beyond the absurd.

    I know, this will happen when the god of lslam and the god of christianity start getting along.

    Looking forward to the beer and sardines.

  4. Sardines? Reminds me of this poem by Frank O'Hara:


    WHY I AM NOT A PAINTER

    I am not a painter, I am a poet.
    Why? I think I would rather be
    a painter, but I am not. Well,

    for instance, Mike Goldberg
    is starting a painting. I drop in.
    "Sit down and have a drink" he
    says. I drink; we drink. I look
    up. "You have SARDINES in it."
    "Yes, it needed something there."
    "Oh." I go and the days go by
    and I drop in again. The painting
    is going on, and I go, and the days
    go by. I drop in. The painting is
    finished. "Where's SARDINES?"
    All that's left is just
    letters, "It was too much," Mike says.

    But me? One day I am thinking of
    a color: orange. I write a line
    about orange. Pretty soon it is a
    whole page of words, not lines.
    Then another page. There should be
    so much more, not of orange, of
    words, of how terrible orange is
    and life. Days go by. It is even in
    prose, I am a real poet. My poem
    is finished and I haven't mentioned
    orange yet. It's twelve poems, I call
    it ORANGES. And one day in a gallery
    I see Mike's painting, called SARDINES.

    --Frank O'Hara
